In this gift book, readers will find proverbs and section introductions chosen to supply lifelines - help for those who need grounding in trying times.

Lifelines: The Black Book of Proverbs

This book contains proverbs from all over the African world, from the African continent across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and the Americas. One unique feature is that the proverbs are arranged by life cycle events: Birth, Childhood, Initiation, Love & Marriage, Challenge, Ethics & Values, Elderhood, and Death & the Afterlife.  We introduce each section with short pieces that affirm African traditions of applying proverbs to everyday life, to provide guidance and inspiration. Readers will find origins of these proverbs. They will find also illustrations that enhance the deeper meaning of the proverbs.
